Take a Look At the Third Season of Damages

When it began two years ago, Damages seemed like a natural successor to The Shield in FX's dramatic line-up: smart, well-acted, with plenty of twists and very little wasted on go-nowhere story lines.

 But as its second season wrapped up last year, Damages had lost a lot of its charm, thanks to some rather nonsensical plot twists tossed in during its finale.

All the same, it's hard not to look forward to the new season, which premieres Jan. 25 at 10 p.m. Part of that anticipation is just the hope that maybe they'll do things a little better this time. But it also has to do with cast. Damages is just overflowing with great actors.

 And it's not just the main cast members (Glenn Close, Rose Byrne, and Tate Donovan), although they all do outstanding work. What's really interesting this season is the choice to cast actors not normally known for their dramatic work (Martin Short and  Lily Tomlin join the cast this season, while last season featured a really creepy turn by SNL actor Darrell Hammond). 

 In addition, Entertainment Weekly is reporting today that Dominic Chianese best known for playing Uncle Junior on seven seasons of The Sopranos, will appear on several episodes of Damages, starting mid-way through the season.

 It'll all be very exciting to watch, even if this year's story goes off the rails.
